If you own an Innova scanner, you're in luck! It's designed to work seamlessly with Mini cars. And the best part? Depending on the specific Innova scanner you have, it can handle both older cars (pre-1996) and newer ones (post-1996).

But here's the important part: not every feature works the same way on every Mini. It all depends on the year, make, and model of your car.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at what your Innova scanner can do for certain Mini cars. Let's make understanding your car diagnostics straightforward!

A Few Words of Caution

Depends on Vehicle

As mentioned above, feature availability depends on your specific vehicle. We can’t possibly go over every single vehicle year, make, and model combo, so we’ll only stick to a few of the most popular ones.

If you’d rather check vehicle compatibility yourself and see all the features available by your vehicle’s specific year and model, feel free to utilize our Coverage Checker. We present this information to the best of our knowledge, but it is not guaranteed.

If you’d like to learn more about how to utilize our Coverage Checker, please click here.

Depends on Tool

It’s obvious, but feature availability will depend on the type of scanner you choose. For the purpose of this article, we’ll use our most advanced handheld scanner - the Innova 5610 - as our scanner.

You can use our Comparison Chart to check which model supports what feature. For example, if the Innova 5610 supports EPB reset, you can safely assume the Innova 5510 will also be able to reset it.
